Cornbread Taco Bowl

I made tacos today, and normally I'd just eat it with a corn tortilla or corn chips, but today, I just put it on top of some leftover cornbread.  It was pretty yummy.

Just read the labels to make sure everything is gluten free.


Friday

Pizza Toast.


I picked up some whole foods bread the other day and I had some leftover Hormel pepperoni, some mozzarella cheese and some pizza sauce from making pizza the other day so today I combined them.  I toasted the bread in the oven first, a little on both sides, then added the sauce, the pepperoni and the cheese.  It turned out really good and is a very quick lunch.

Wednesday

Carrot Cake.


Divas Can Cook

This past weekend was my husband's birthday and he wanted carrot cake.  I had my son (who is also not gluten free) bake him a regular cake from a mix, but my daughter and I kind of wanted some too.  Of course I had to look it up and found this wonderful recipe on the Divas Can Cook blog.  It's very, very good.  My carrots are not small enough is my only complaint.  Next time I will blend them up some more.


Monday

The care and eating of gluten free bread.

We eat Rudi brand bread.  We like it the best of the gluten free breads that we have tried, minus some that you have to bake yourself and some that they used to have at a local bakery.  That is to say, we like it the best of our current choices, not to say that it tastes just like regular, gluten-full (poisonous to us) wheat bread.   We have grown to like it but we have to adapt it.   It makes sandwiches, french toast and cinnamon toast possible.  :-)  On the package of the bread, it says for the softest bread, to let it sit on the counter, however, not having gluten makes it not very soft, even at its softest.  We have found that it makes an excellent grilled cheese and excellent, very tasty, toast but in our opinion, it's just not very good right out of the bag.  For some sandwiches (PB & J for instance), I like soft bread, but not really toasted bread, so I put the bread in the waffle iron for a short time, not enough to toast it, but just enough to kind of steam it.  This makes it soft and then it makes a very good sandwich.  I hope this helps you as you try to cope with your favorite brand of gluten free bread.


Sunday

Bacon Wrapped Chicken.

I made this bacon wrapped chicken a little differently, in that I just layered it in a pan, bacon, chicken, cream cheese and garlic powder, cheese and another layer of bacon, but if when I make it again, I am going to skip the bottom layer of bacon because I couldn't turn them over this way to get all of the bacon crispy.  Still yum.

I served it with a broccoli, carrots and cauliflower blend.
  Remember to read your label on your bacon to make sure it's gluten free!
